About this project

Footprint Architects have completed the renovation and alterations of an existing building to form a new college for young people with Aspergers Syndrome. Opening its doors in April 2016, Summerwood College supports and prepares young people in developing independence and the transition into main stream further and higher education, or full time employment. It features two teaching areas and supporting group rooms, a sensory room, a flat where students are able to develop independence and life skills, dining and kitchen facilities and a games room. The concept for the external extensions draws on the gables and black timber frame of the period building. Internally walls are lined with birch faced plywood creating a natural and calming environment for students. Large glass doors are situated in the games room, which allows natural light and a connection with the small outside courtyard. ‘Having worked with Footprint Architects for the past 15-months, I can highly recommend them. They have been hugely supportive, innovative and approachable, which has led to the completion of our high specification Summerwood Campus’ – Ash Walland, Lead Professional of Summerwood Campus and Assistant Headteacher at Linwood School.
